How to Talk to Anyone Book Review:

"You'll not only break the ice, you'll melt it away with your new skills." -- Larry King "The lost art of verbal communication may be revitalized by Leil Lowndes." -- Harvey McKay, author of “How to Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive” What is that magic quality makes some people instantly loved and respected? Everyone wants to be their friend (or, if single, their lover!) In business, they rise swiftly to the top of the corporate ladder. What is their "Midas touch?" What it boils down to is a more skillful way of dealing with people. The author has spent her career teaching people how to communicate for success. In her book How to Talk to Anyone (Contemporary Books, October 2003) Lowndes offers 92 easy and effective sure-fire success techniques-- she takes the reader from first meeting all the way up to sophisticated techniques used by the big winners in life. In this information-packed book you’ll find: 9 ways to make a dynamite first impression 14 ways to master small talk, "big talk," and body language 14 ways to walk and talk like a VIP or celebrity 6 ways to sound like an insider in any crowd 7 ways to establish deep subliminal rapport with anyone 9 ways to feed someone's ego (and know when NOT to!) 11 ways to make your phone a powerful communications tool 15 ways to work a party like a politician works a room 7 ways to talk with tigers and not get eaten alive In her trademark entertaining and straight-shooting style, Leil gives the techniques catchy names so you'll remember them when you really need them, including: "Rubberneck the Room," "Be a Copyclass," "Come Hither Hands," “Bare Their Hot Button,” “The Great Scorecard in the Sky," and "Play the Tombstone Game,” for big success in your social life, romance, and business. How to Talk to Anyone, which is an update of her popular book, Talking the Winner's Way (see the 5-star reviews of the latter) is based on solid research about techniques that work! By the way, don't confuse How to Talk to Anyone with one of Leil's previous books, How to Talk to Anybody About Anything. This one is completely different!

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone Book Review:

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Now being developed as a television series with Eva Longoria and ABC! “Rarely have I read a book that challenged me to see myself in an entirely new light, and was at the same time laugh-out-loud funny and utterly absorbing.”—Katie Couric “This is a daring, delightful, and transformative book.”—Arianna Huffington, Founder, Huffington Post and Founder & CEO, Thrive Global “Wise, warm, smart, and funny. You must read this book.”—Susan Cain, New York Times best-selling author of Quiet From a New York Times best-selling author, psychotherapist, and national advice columnist, a hilarious, thought-provoking, and surprising new book that takes us behind the scenes of a therapist’s world—where her patients are looking for answers (and so is she). One day, Lori Gottlieb is a therapist who helps patients in her Los Angeles practice. The next, a crisis causes her world to come crashing down. Enter Wendell, the quirky but seasoned therapist in whose of­fice she suddenly lands. With his balding head, cardigan, and khakis, he seems to have come straight from Therapist Central Casting. Yet he will turn out to be anything but. As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her patients’ lives — a self-absorbed Hollywood producer, a young newlywed diagnosed with a terminal illness, a senior citizen threatening to end her life on her birthday if nothing gets better, and a twenty-something who can’t stop hooking up with the wrong guys — she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very ones she is now bringing to Wendell. With startling wisdom and humor, Gottlieb invites us into her world as both clinician and patient, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope between love and desire, meaning and mortality, guilt and redemption, terror and courage, hope and change. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is rev­olutionary in its candor, offering a deeply per­sonal yet universal tour of our hearts and minds and providing the rarest of gifts: a boldly reveal­ing portrait of what it means to be human, and a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious lives and our power to transform them.

Talking to Strangers Book Review:

A Best Book of the Year: The Financial Times, Bloomberg, Chicago Tribune, and Detroit Free Pres Malcolm Gladwell, host of the podcast Revisionist History and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Outliers, offers a powerful examination of our interactions with strangers -- and why they often go wrong. How did Fidel Castro fool the CIA for a generation? Why did Neville Chamberlain think he could trust Adolf Hitler? Why are campus sexual assaults on the rise? Do television sitcoms teach us something about the way we relate to each other that isn't true? While tackling these questions, Malcolm Gladwell was not solely writing a book for the page. He was also producing for the ear. In the audiobook version of Talking to Strangers, you'll hear the voices of people he interviewed--scientists, criminologists, military psychologists. Court transcripts are brought to life with re-enactments. You actually hear the contentious arrest of Sandra Bland by the side of the road in Texas. As Gladwell revisits the deceptions of Bernie Madoff, the trial of Amanda Knox, and the suicide of Sylvia Plath, you hear directly from many of the players in these real-life tragedies. There's even a theme song - Janelle Monae's "Hell You Talmbout." Something is very wrong, Gladwell argues, with the tools and strategies we use to make sense of people we don't know. And because we don't know how to talk to strangers, we are inviting conflict and misunderstanding in ways that have a profound effect on our lives and our world.

Speak The Graphic Novel Book Review:

The critically acclaimed, award-winning, modern classic Speak is now a stunning graphic novel. "Speak up for yourself—we want to know what you have to say." From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda knows this is a big fat lie, part of the nonsense of high school. She is friendless—an outcast—because she busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen to her. Through her work on an art project, she is finally able to face what really happened that night: She was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends Merryweather and is still a threat to her. With powerful illustrations by Emily Carroll, Laurie Halse Anderson's Speak: The Graphic Novel comes alive for new audiences and fans of the classic novel. This title has Common Core connections.

How to Talk to Anyone Book Review:

Have you been in a situation where you spoke to someone, and they perceived you as aggressive even when you did not have an ounce of aggression in you? Have you been in a room where people only wanted to speak to one person, and you couldn''t figure out why the person received all that attention? Have you ever had your boss scold you or even fire you from your job after speaking with him briefly, and you couldn''t point to any careless word you said during the conversation? You may or may not have known that the reason behind the unfortunate event, but most often than not, it is because your communication method was poor, or rather, your delivery method. Well, if you asked, most people have even lost count of the numerous times seemingly innocent conversations landed them in trouble or caused them many losses. Without proper knowledge of how to communicate, you may borrow something from a friend and be dismissed, you could have a chance to speak to your boss and end up fired, or you could miss the opportunity to gain that client who was interested in your products or services. People say that money, and sometimes love, makes the world go round, but in reality, there isn''t much you could do without proper communication. How would people give you what you asked for? How would people understand what you? You need to communicate properly just to get by. It is not enough for you to just get by, though. As people become more knowledgeable, they are becoming pickier. Twenty years ago, a customer would stand to be treated and spoken to rudely, if only they could access the products or services you are offering. However, with globalization and more education from various sources, people now understand their rights and have more choices. In fact, a business owner is unlikely to survive in his craft if he cannot treat a customer right because word of his misdemeanor will spread like bush fire. This attitude has spread even to other areas of life, and people are more impatient with poor treatment. If you are rude to your friends or employees, you will soon have none around you. Therefore, it pays to be able to communicate with others well, not only for your message to be heard, but also to ensure that it is conveyed in good faith. As such, the author has gone out of his way to come up with a comprehensive book filled with useful communication guidelines to help you in your dealings with yourself and out to how you deal with others. As you know, good communication begins with your treatment of yourself and onto how you treat other people. Asking others what we need or want is natural and desirable, and is an important part of interpersonal communication. In this book we will refer to different types of requests such as: asking for favors, information or help, asking for defective merchandise to be changed, proposing activities, etc. Inside this book, you will find: The most explicit definition of effective communication and its application in daily living The most viable information on how to improve communication at your workplace The most credible information on how you can improve communication with your spouse Advice on how to communicate with friends effectively Advice on how you ought to handle various conversations without prompting violence A clear description of the art of persuasion and its application in conversations The most vivid description of errors people often make when communicating A wide range of tips, tricks, and techniques you could take up to better your communication with various persons Many practical examples of how to carry on effective conversations Asking for things frequently, as this increase
